Launch of Updated Volunteer Background Check Process 

Tuesday, December 2, 2014


The HEB ISD VIPS Background Check System has been revamped and is ready to process background checks for volunteers starting today (12/2/14)

The system will look very familiar to the old system, but background checks will take up to 48 hours to process.  NOTE – the box in the upper right corner of background check page will be RED “Pending”, or BLUE “Up to Date”.  The background check is not complete until box is BLUE.

Because this process can now TAKE UP TO 48 HOURS, we will continue to temporarily allow volunteers to use Positive Proof for volunteering. We encourage all volunteers to go online and use the new system, but we will allow Positive Proof to be used for volunteer activities until Friday, January 16, 2015. This marks the end of the first semester. Once the second semester begins on Tuesday, January 20, all volunteers must have had their online background check processed in order to volunteer on campus.


We have begun booking badge sessions at the Pat May Center to make VIPS badges for volunteers once they have completed their background check.

We will require the following documentation to be brought to the VIPS badge sessions:


1)   A printed out paper copy of a completed background check showing the volunteer’s 2015 background check expiry date (your VIPS credentials). 2)   A photo ID (driver’s license or passport)
3)   Your old VIPS badge, if available (will be destroyed).


We cannot accept an image of a completed background check on a smartphone or device. You MUST bring a print out of your new VIPS credentials.

The above paperwork will help us expedite the badge making process.

Our first two VIPS badge making dates are as follow, with more dates to come:


TUESDAY, DECEMBER 9 – 12:00 PM – 5:30 PM – PAT MAY CENTER

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 11 – 10:00 AM – 3:30 PM – PAT MAY CENTER
